From April to June, 2010 NASA Ames Reseach Center and the Traveling Space Museum (TSM) sponsored "Space Day" at six San Francisco Bay Area schools in an effort to motivate and inspire the next generation of space explorers.
Ames worked with the TSM to teach students the way astronauts are taught...by doing. Students were treated to a rich and exciting educational experience at approximately 14 activity stations presented by NASA experts and aerospace enthusiasts. The stations included an International Space Station module mock-up, Orion capsule simulator, micro-jet, space station toilet, hovercraft and water rockets.
